US Foods executive to head AquaBounty
AQUABOUNTY Technologies, the American company noted for its research and development of genetically modified fish, has appointed US Foods senior vice president Sylvia Wulf as its new chief executive and executive director.
She is highly experienced in the food industry and previously held senior positions with Tyson Foods Inc, Sara Lee Corporation, and the Bunge Corporation. She is currently on the board of directors and the executive committee of the National Fisheries Institute.
Her appointment is thought to have been planned to coincide with the company’s developing emphasis on the commercialisation of AquAdvantage Salmon, now that the majority of the required regulatory hurdles have been passed. She replaces Ronald Stotish, who is moving into a new role with the company.
